In filmmaking my heart goes to documentary, as it embraces both a need for a complete freedom of work and my vision of the world as a highly political place. By political I mean the large perspective of human interaction and social constructions. I enjoy reflecting on the interactions between individual and collective experiences of a society and its history. Transmission is an important part of my work.
In At Titi's balcony, I filmed the main character for close to two years. I usually plunge myself into the character's reality, build a link to be as close as possible to his/her truth. In my experience, this takes time.
